Poll: Do you play for $$?

Postby jbird669 » Tue Feb 08, 2005 2:46 pm

Just wondering, because I notice a lot of you don't play for money. My personal opinion is that if you're going to put in all that work for 6-7 months, it should be worth something.
Baseball is a game where a curve is an optical illusion, a screwball can be a pitch or a person, stealing is legal and you can spit anywhere you like except in the umpire's eye or on the ball. ~Jim Murray

I don't play for money, only for fun.

As a kid I collected Baseball cards for fun. Today's kids seem to be more interested in what their Baseball cards are worth.

I can spend a lot of time and energy in something that I consider fun to do without expecting a monetary return for my efforts whether it is Fantasy Baseball or anything else.

We don't pool together a pot for the winner, but side bets are usually made on baseball predictions or H2H matchups so it adds up if you're on the money (pun intended :-B).
Can't worry about tomorrow's pain tonight.

Wow,
I must say I am shocked at teh results. Last year it seemed that a lot of people played for free on Yahoo.

i think you need to refine your question. I play money and free leagues and I'm guessing a lot of others do as well.

I play for money and still use Yahoo for it. We just pay the commish the pot money through PayPal.

But I still do a handful of leagues that are just for fun.

I play on Yahoo in $ leagues as well as for fun leagues. This year I'm joining a money league on CBS. I've played for fun for years just because I enjoy it. Last year I hooked up with some guys who wanted to play for money so I'm expanding this year with my winnings.
